Published June 3rd 2020, 230 pages, 68 tables, 65 figures

Quantum Dots (QDs) are used in a range of optoelectronic devices, including TVs and displays, light-emitting devices (LEDs), solar cells, photodiodes, thermoelectrics, photoconductors and field-effect transistors, while QD solutions have been used in a number of in vivo and in vitro imaging, sensing and labelling techniques.

The quantum dot market is moving towards more advanced applications of quantum dots in TVs with major producers developing technologies beyond Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) such as:

  • QD Glass on LGP.
  • Quantum dot colour filters (QDCF) for microLEDS and displays.
  • Electroluminescent QDs.
  • Perovskite QDs.
  • Inkjet printed QDs.

 

Market segments such as micro and mini LEDs,  sensors, lighting, solar windows, anti-counterfeiting and biosciences offer excellent opportunities. The Global Market for Quantum Dots analyses quantum dot suppliers, display manufacturers and OEMs. The global quantum dots (QD) based products market will be potentially valued at more than $35 billion by 2030.  The optoelectronics market represents the vast majority of this figure, chiefly High Definition TVs-QLED-TVs. However, the market will face signficant disruption this year in terms of manufacturing, supply chain and consumer demand due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

TV displays still dominate the end user segment for QD-based products with a fast growing market for QD monitors. The use of QDs in solar conversion windows is also being heavily backed this year with a number of companies developing prototypes and funding multi-million dollar investments. The price of large QD-TVs is also falling.

This 230 page analysis report on the quantum dots market is now in its 16th edition (First edition 2009) and provides a more in-depth analysis of the HDTV segment and emerging markets for quantum dots, graphene quantum dots and perovskite quantum dots plus a new QD Roadmap. Contents include:
